This is a Music Video I created as my Final project for my Typography III Class.
Check out my work at wix.com/jesijean/portfolio
The lyrics were inspired by the character Norman Bates in the movie Psycho so I designed this with Saul Bass in mind since he was the graphic designer that created much of Alfred Hitchcocks Movie Posters.

I am not and editor nor am I an animator, but I think I got by pretty well. I love this song and surprisingly enough I did not get sick of it while spent about a weeks worth of time creating it.

Hope you enjoy it.

Excellent presentation of the lyrics. I hope you got an A. That was timed very well, and the fonts were great!

Wow, genius work. I almost never comment on YouTube, but this one truly deserves a comment.  I love the typography and all the small details of perfect synchronization between the song and the video.  How the screen shakes when cymbals clashes, how the blood drops fit with the music (both in space and in time), how the typography suits well the general ambiance of the song and how varied the characters are in fonts, size, layout. You are a great artist.  Keep up the good work and I wish you the best inspiration for all your future work.

This song is repetitive. If you say something once, why say it again?

Part of the chorus and the bridge are in French. The verse translates to "What I did, that evening, what she said, that evening fulfilling my hope I throw myself towards glory." The chorus lyric "Qu'est-ce que c'est?" means "What is this?" https://www.facebook.com/TalkingHeadsofficial?fref=ts
